Old RG550DX-comments, recommendations,question
I know not much of a topic, but I can't say enought about my old 92' RG550DX purpleneon.
I slapped an air zone, and paf Joe in that puppy with no tone control... and man... that's the sound. The super wizard maple neck just kicks butt. Seriously one of the best guitars ever IMO. I know it doesn't have the stature of a Jem, but.........something about those old RG550s
I love this guitar, it has the sound, feel I feel I can't get from most newer Rgs.
The only thing I'm not digging is the 2 and 4 positions for clean sounds...can someone recommend a good single for my RG that isn't so weak and balances a bit better. 1 and 5 positions are great with this setup for my distortion sounds, but comes up a little weak when I go clean.
Also, keeping the fingerboard clean on a maple neck is a pain, I can clean it up to a point but sometimes grime gets in the grain and it's hard to clean...any suggestions would be appreciated.
I wish Ibanez would bring back maple necks...the closest thing I can get to this is the PGM...I do absolutely adore my RGA121VLF..but it's a different animal of course...But I miss the old maple neck wizard necks...
